URL DB recategorization

L3 Networker

Hello ,

We are currently using Panorama 5.0.11 Version .

Most of the website is blocking due to this version .

We have already requested brightcloud to recategorized the URL to new one .

But still we are facing the issuue.

Like widma.com coming to Adult and porn category .

Also how to clear the URL cache via CLI.


Hello ,

No it still 168 Hrs.

Any advise for the setting .

The above issue has been resolve after manually clear the cache .

Hello Tiwara,

Cache is cleared completely when the "dynamic url cache timeout"  timer expires ,you can change it to 24 hours instead of 168 hours ( 7 days ) default. This value is used to determine the length of time an URL entry can remain in the cache after it is from the URL filtering service.

Dynamic URL cache timeout value is used when the setting "Dynamic URL Filtering"  is enabled on URL filtering profiles which will access the Bright-cloud database in the cloud for the latest categorization information. Otherwise, the URL filtering engine will only check for categorization on-device cache.

More information on URL categorization can be found here: URL Categorization Components and Process



Hello Jahnavi,

We have update the "dynamic url cache timeout" to 24 Hrs .
